  • What a perfect place for a wedding- especially for couples who are looking for something more than outdoor photos. The grounds and paths are spectacular, but even more, so is being able to incorporate elements of the main building- and even indoors! I also do recommend an evening stroll for a few nighttime photos.
  • Always love a quick walk here. There are bathrooms in the visitor center. The trails are well marked and maintained. It's a beautiful place with easy trails. You can stay 30 minutes or walk for a couple hours - that's what I like about this place. (And you forget that you are right on Rt 9)
